I would like just to simply showcase one of the artists around here who i feel warrants some mentioning. Rebecca Wudarski, one of the local musicians finished an album she had been working on a few months ago. It’s a truly impressive piece of work from the songwriting, to the instrumental proficiency, to the arrangements of the several old time songs you haven’t heard like this before. It is staggeringly good. Since then has been playing shows at the venues around here (Purple Fiddle and Mountain State) with several other local musicians. She’s also been stirring up the music scene out and about at Mt. State Brewing Company’s open jam night on thursday. Mountain Made just juried in her cd, my gallery (the white room) has been selling them for a few months along with her block print cards. The CD itself is a combination of these two with each sleeve wearing a hand pressed print which she does on her own.
It helps me having people around who are actively pursuing their art. It’s inspiring. And it always teaches me the same lesson. YOU have to do it. You’re the only one who is going to make your art.
